Demolition is well underway at the site where Miami’s westernmost skyscraper is being built.
Photos show that landscape architect Raymond Jungle’s former offices are now being demolished in Brickell on the Miami River. A former location of Finnegan’s on the River is also now nearly completely demolished.
The Miami River tower will rise 640 feet above ground, or 645 feet above sea level, making it the only building so far inland in Miami to reach the 600+ foot height.
Developer Chetrit Group recently obtained a $310 million construction loan and filed a Notice of Commencement that construction was underway.
The tower will rise 54 stories.
The first phase now under construction will include 632 apartments and retail space, along with a public promenade on the river.
Eventually, the project will have 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 196,882-square-feet of retail space, and 98,040-square-feet of office space.
